Katy Perry to play at Lakewood High SchoolBy Reverb Staff | October 18th, 2013 | 10 comments
Lakewood High School won the Good Morning America contest to have singer Katy Perry perform at the school.
To enter the contest, more than 2,000 students from 80 different school clubs filmed a lip dub to Perry’s hit single “Roar.” A lip dub combines lip syncing and audio dubbing. Their video has been viewed more than 564,000 times on Vimeo and 246,000 times on YouTube.
The concert by Katy Perry will be held at the school on Oct. 25 and will be broadcast on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The school filmed the video late last month, and Katy Perry tweeted in response, “Oh my GAWD. Now this is what I call school SPIRIT.”

Perry announced the winner on “Good Morning America” Friday morning.
“For me Lakewood really embodied a whole school spirit. You saw so many different people coming together to do one shot,” Perry said. “It was so interesting and so well done.”
